The Community Impact Internships Program, or CIIP, is a competitive, paid summer internship program that selects 50 JHU undergraduate students to be paired with nonprofit organizations, community organizations, and government agencies throughout Baltimore City, and offers an intensive, cohort-based learning environment. Internships focus on community-identified projects and are selected for each student based on their skills and interests, providing a unique and individualized experience. In addition to interning in the community, participants attend an extensive orientation program and weekly reflection sessions with presentations to familiarize interns with Baltimore's past and present.
Interns will work 35 hours a week for eight weeks and earn a $4,000 salary. The dates for this year's program are June 4 to Aug. 4, 2018. CIIP is available to current JHU freshmen through juniors.
The application for the 2018 Community Impact Internships Program is available on the Become an Intern page of the Center for Social Concern/Homewood Student Affairs website.
The priority deadline for application submissions was Dec. 22; however, applications received by 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 15 will still be considered.
The goal of this program is twofold: to give JHU undergraduates an opportunity to be directly involved in a community in Baltimore City, and to support the important work being done by nonprofits and government agencies. The CIIP is housed within the Center for Social Concern at Johns Hopkins, and is made possible through a generous gift of $2.25 million from a private donor.
